Press Release: Carolyn Letvin at Edgewater Gallery, Middlebury

On display April 1 - 30, 2011

Edgewater Gallery

One Mill Street, Middlebury, VT

Carolyn Letvin first began painting the ancient, biblical breed of Jacob's Sheep while attending a painting retreat to focus on cows. She found the sheep's intricacies, textures and negative spaces fast became endlessly inspiring, eventually becoming her primary subject matter. Trained in Flemish Old Master techniques, studying the sheep allows her to explore application, composition and surface texture in an entirely captivating, satisfying manner.

"The act of painting is a series of constant surprises – an experience that is always exhilarating and, at times, even magical. Bringing composition, color, surface and light quality together is my continual struggle and challenge. " - Carolyn Letvin.

Carolyn’s Featured Artist exhibition will be on display at Edgewater throughout the month of April. For more information please visit or contact us at 802.458.0098.
